    The only part of this movie that's any good is when Batman and Bane face off in the sewers. And maybe the ending. And then ten hours after the ending when John Blake has his head caved in by a couple of thugs on his first night out as Batman.

    This is where the shine started coming off Nolan for me, but I probably should have seen it coming sooner. The Legend of Batman is a cool angle to take…

    Does it match The Dark Knight? No. No it doesn't. The Dark Knight (even in 2015) feels like a one-off. Does it match Batman Begins? In my opinion, it does, easily. A fantastic way for Bale's Bruce Wayne / Batman to bow out and a great way to end one of, if not the best trilogies of all time. It's been 3 years since this came out and 'The Dark Knight Trilogy' ended, but people will carry on talking about these films. They changed comic-book movies forever. For the better.

    Piss poor, disappointing nonsense.

    It took four years for visionary Christopher Nolan to bring his Dark Knight Trilogy to its prodigious end, and for many a fanboy, the anticipation levels had already peaked by the time the ice had even cracked... yet despite the resounding conclusion we were given, there were a number of disputable moments throughout its entirety that simply cannot be ignored...

    Following those final, catastrophic moments in The Dark Knight, Batman's heroic image was tarnished following Harvey Dent's untimely demise, disappearing…

    Following on from the much beloved 2008 film The Dark Knight (which featured a breathtaking, chilling and ultimately poignant performance from the late Heath Ledger), there’s a certain amount of pressure on director Christopher Nolan to end his much acclaimed take on the Batman franchise the right way. Quite honestly, The Dark Knight Rises is a pretty flawed movie (Cinema Sins have a nice tally going here) and, like its two predecessors, can often feel bloated and overtly serious. Yet…

    So much goes right. So much goes hilariously, absurdly wrong. It's hard not to feel like Christopher Nolan is a rich middle-aged man dramatizing his lurid anxieties about the Occupy movement — his imagery is stuffed with everything short of a miserable Soviet bread line — and jettisoning his extremely promising first act by trying to force a return to Happy Capitalist-American Normalcy by the end, with all kinds of brain-twisting mess inbetween. Basically, don't try to parse out what…

    "I guess we're both suckers."

    Now that I've suffered through the incoherence of Star Trek Into Darkness and Spectre, I'm far more favorably inclined towards the plot of Nolan's attempt to "trilogize" his saga of Bruce Wayne. For all its absurdities, DKR is a model of narrative logic compared to some other franchise stinkers. But in the end, it's still a load of horseshit. The point is to put Gotham in the most peril possible to give Batman a battle…

    How does one top the masterpiece, "The Dark Knight," well, in some aspects, Nolan accomplished that. Many fans of the series had complained that it had no batman in a batman film, but that didn't seem to matter when the scale is so large and the acting from everybody is great. This movie is a bit more action-filled than its older brothers, at the expense of it being 2:45. I found it great, but the morals of the insane joker…
